Margin not explained! I think it's pretty comprehensive. Gross margin declined slightly to 47.8% (2015: 49.8%), largely due to product mix and the effect of the depreciation of Sterling versus the US Dollar. The majority of our product costs are denominated in US Dollars so while the weakening of Sterling helps our revenue line, product costs increase more than the revenues as a result of the weakness of Sterling. Operating margins declined from 23.3% in 2015 to 21.6%. This was partly due to the weakness of Sterling but also due to the operating margins of EMCO being lower than those of XP Power as a whole. Brexit The weakening of Sterling versus the US Dollar in the period following the United Kingdom Referendum on EU membership on 23 June 2016 has obviously had a material effect on the presentation of our financial results in 2016. Approximately 75% of our revenues are denominated in US Dollars and the translation of these revenues into Sterling for reporting purposes has had a beneficial effect. However, the majority of our cost of sales and a large proportion of our operating expenses are also denominated in US Dollars. While a stronger US Dollar helps our overall gross margin in absolute terms (albeit to a limited degree) it also has the effect of reducing the gross margin percentage as costs rise disproportionately to the revenues. We estimate that our reported 2016 gross margin percentage could be approximately 130 basis points lower as a result.

Slight fall in margin which isn't explained, it's still high in any event, all other metrics moving ahead, another great statement and I love it when they talk about 'years'. By far my biggest position at 20% of portfolio but very happy to keep holding. We have broken through the £16-£17 trading range but I wonder if a share split would encourage future share price rises.

Precisely. I have held shares for some time in AVV,SXS and WTB, all higher than XPP, and it hasn't done them any harm. A share split is just a golden opportunity for corporate advisers, registrars and lawyers to get their snouts in the additional fees trough. Even more so here because the company is Singapore domiciled and we own not the shares but DIs.

lol yes but a 20% increase in a share price is still 20% no matter if its a £2 move or a 36p move its still 20% I agree with you the price of £18/share does scare people but it shouldn't I have a number of such priced shares and too be honest once you have a few and watch the price movements on a daily basis there's nothing to be scared of

I'm already heavily loaded here more than i like for the liquidity but a break and hold thro £18 and i'll add, equally if it falls back to a point of solid support i'd also add. woody

we've both been here a long time and it's been very rewarding particularly on dividends and a fair bit of captial appreciation too albeit from some time ago. If they do 20% revenue yoy we are going to see a re-rating even with the current capital structure. The problem is many investors look at £18/share and it scares them off as it's got to move nearly £2 just to make 10%. As you say 10:1, now that would be interesting £1.80/share and 192m shares i figure we'd see an immediate 20% uplift based on todays outlook statement but wtfdik. woody

nfs, Welcome, good luck with your investment Woody A good point on the stock split maybe even a 10 for 1. Otherwise we'll start getting into Berkshire Hathaway territory. --- I like the update (usually that's so with XPP). On some standard measures we're not what I'd call cheap...however according to Stockopedia we qualify dor NT's "growth investing" portfolio so we certainly need to apply a larger ration than a standard measure. This is one of the highest quality stocks on the FTSE in my estimation and with these electrical manufacturers consolidation is often (sadly) the destination. In these cases I like an EV vs profit calcualtion (because that whats Acquirer's look at, along with niche skills/ specialisms, market entries). Nice barrier to entry, great production facilities wel-placed geographivally also, XPP has it all for me and the encouraging growth outlook means a much higer than usuall rating can be fully justified. I could hold this for a long time.

order intake for the fourth qtr 23% ahead of comparable period. investors slow to catch on imv. fwiw i think they'd be wise to do a 5 for 1 forward share split to increase the number of shares available, the share price would fly if it were a little more liquid woody

every chance of that fozzie, the growth in revenues is pretty decent imv. forecast revenue was just under £125m according to digital look so just under £130m beats forecast. We're beginning to see the benefits of the embedded systems coming thro'. On this basis I'd expect eps to be around 110p but we'll see when the numbers come out. per around 16 with a yield of 4%. And next year is looking strong so far so what's not to like. woody

Yet another positive statement from the company. We will have to wait for the results to get the full picture but all looking very healthy. Loving that 70p dividend but would like to see this move up and out of its range bound channel.

we've been in a consolidation channel now for three years range bound between 1400p support and 1800p resistance. when it breaks the 1800p resistance it's going to go something imho. wc

I love this stock, one of the few divi shares I hold and always amazed it doesn't get any attention. Lots of $$$ earnings (75+%) is't going to harm FY figures either.
